Dealing with erectile dysfunction can be awkward and embarrassing, but you can play an important role in encouraging the man in your life to get checked out to rule out any medical problems.

Medically reviewed by Lindsey Marcellin, MD, MPH


You’re in the bedroom ready to go — except suddenly your guy isn’t. And this isn’t the first time. Various scenarios might run through your head. Is he not attracted to you anymore? Is he having an affair? Is he gay?

Most of the time the answer is none of the above and the issue is actually a case of typical erectile dysfunction (ED).

Women and ED: What Is Your Man Feeling?

Communication when it comes to sex can be awkward, and that’s before you add a problem like ED to the mix, as well as the denial that often accompanies it.

“Our society has traditionally supported a notion of rugged individualism, strength, and stoicism, especially in men — traits that have helped Eastwood, Stallone, and Willis make great livings,” said Stephen J. Betchen, DSW, LMFT, a marital and sex therapist in private practice in Cherry Hill, N.J.; a clinical assistant professor at Thomas Jefferson University; and author of Magnetic Partners. “Steeped in Victorian history, it has also created an uncomfortable and conflicting atmosphere regarding the topic. To have a problem in this area is, unfortunately, perceived as shameful and embarrassing.”

Women and ED: What Might Be Causing Your Guy’s Problem?

ED can result from a variety of factors and can often surface when there are underlying issues in a man’s life, according to Megan Fleming, PhD, a certified sex and relationship therapist and clinical instructor of psychology at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University. Stresses at work or concern about job stability could be enough to throw a man off his game.

After one or two incidents, ED can also become a self-fulfilling prophecy. “The anxiety and tension men feel about what will or won’t happen unfortunately hijacks their arousal response,” said Fleming. “The foundation of arousal is relaxation. Men who experience ED are almost always feeling anything but relaxed, so focused on what they want to have happen and fear won’t happen both for themselves and their partners.”

Finally, it’s certainly possible that a medical condition could be behind the ED. If it becomes a recurring issue, then a checkup is definitely in order.

Women and ED: How Can You Help Him?

Given men’s common reluctance to talk about ED with their partners, getting them to visit a doctor about it can sometimes be just as much of a challenge. However, it’s important to rule out possible causes that could have greater health implications, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart or thyroid problems, or issues with the nervous system.

To help encourage a doctor visit:

“Be gentle and focus on the health aspects rather than the performance aspects,” said Betchen.

Offer to go with him to the doctor.

Help educate him and put his mind at ease. Let him know that often a simple pill can help and that invasive procedures are not the typical treatment anymore. ( We are suggest herbal pills like prolargent 5×5 extreme )

Don’t attack or blame. Instead try to emphasize that many men have ED and that it’s quite normal.

Stay positive. Treatment is often very successful.

Ultimately the best thing you can do to help your man is to be there emotionally and physically. Be supportive and open to discussion and treatment while also realizing (and helping him to realize) that intimacy can be shared in many ways and is much more than the simple act of sex.
